The county campaigners were at the thriving town of Pine wood when we went to press last week, and therefore we could not give an account of the meet ing. Mr. J. R. Griffin presided, and he held things down like a veteran. We have heretofore given our readers what the can didates stand for, and most of them made the same speeches as at the former meetings. with the exception of Mr. Weeks,who threw more vim into his delivery, and really made a very telling speech. Major Richardson re plied to the charges Mr. Gallu chat made against him. Mr.Ap pelt relied upon his long ac quaintance with the people who should have known him,and did not bother to make any reply to the absurd charges Mr. Gallu chat made. He had more re spect for the people's intelli gence than to believe theywould give any consideration to Mr. Galgchat's spleen and buncome. The speaking took place in the church grove, and all the speak ers received a most respectful hearing. Mr. Appelt had been told that he would be questioned considerably by those who were at Manning at the State cam paign meeting, but instead, Mr. Appelt was treated with the ut most courtesy and during his en tire speech seemed to-have a lis tening audience. The next day the candidates reached Summer ton, a town the entire county can feel proud of. There is every evidence of thrift and energy, and best of all, a practical dem onstration of what pulling to gether can do. No town in the State, in the same length of time has developed faster and it is still developing. Summerton is not booming but it has a strong steady growth. Hon. C. M. Da vis circulated among the visitors with invitations to all of the can didates to dine at the HotelSum mnerton, and by the way, Mr. Hunter, the proprietor of the Hotel Summerton makes an ideal host. He has cool and comfort able rooms, and sets an excel lent table. It was avery thought ful courtesy extended to the vis itors by the citizens of Summer ton, and we can voice the senti ments of the party when we say it was sincerely appreciated by all. It was unexpected kindness, and only showed the public spir it of Sumimerton's citizens. The meeting was held in~ the academy with Judge A. J. Rich bourg presiding. Major Rich bourg is an old-timer and knows exactly how to keep a crowd to gether. The 'attendance was. good, and whenever a speaker made a good point, the audience recognized it with their applause. They gave the speakers a con siderate hearing, and after the meeting many expressed them selves favorably upon the way most of the candidates were con ducting the campaign. It was iadeeded an enjoyable meeting. Friday at Manning concluded the speaking toni-, and as it was the largest meeting and of suf ficient importance to have a rep resentative of the Columbia State yresent, we reproduce his account of that meeting. Manning, Aug. 25.-The campaign closed here yesterday -with about 400 voters present. The daywas ideal and the meeting was called promptly at 11 o'clock by the chairman, Mr. D. M. Bradham. The meeting was opened by prayer offered by Rev. J. P. Inab inet. The first speaker was Mr. Louis Ap pelt, candidate for the senate. He paid tribute to the people of Clarendon, say ing that whatever he was, he was in debted to the people of Clarendon for it. Mr. Appelt favored local option and made quite an eloquent plea for it. He said the dispensary had been a failure financially as otherwise. Next introduced was M. C. Gallu chat, candidate for the senate. He * opened up amid applause and told quite an interesting joke. Mr. Galluchat charged Mr. Appelt with being a Re publican and with allying himself with commercial Democracy. He favored the State dispensary. J. W. Kennedy was next introduced and paid a tribute to the citizenship of South Carolina, and said he wanted-no ideas from Georgia or elsewhere to manage the affairs of the State. He spoke feelingly of the work he did as a member of the convention and the leg islature. All the candidates favor good *roads, good schools and an equitable adjustment of the taxes. Mr. Kennedy ~favored the State dispensary. Henry B. Richardson was introduced as the last candidate for the senate. Major Richardson in the outset denied the charges that were preferred or made against nim to the effect that he was brought out by any party or par ties, stating that the report was abso lutely false. Major Richardson favors the State dispensary and thinks that the dispensary can be restored to its original form or possibly the system can be made better. He thinks the -dispensary has met all of its obligations and it has decreased drunkenness. Mr. 0. C. Scarborough said he was sick and couldn't talk. He severely criticised the delegations that have represented the county in the past. He is opposed to s e n di n me n to the le gi sla t u re who owni Lnd spoke very confidently of his elec ,ion on the 28th. He said that if he as sent to the legislature he would do verything possible. Dr. I. M.Woods was next introduced. le is iu favor of the State dispensary .nd believes it has lessened drunken tess in the State. He spoke for some ength as to the whiskey question and avored better roads, better schools Lnd higher education, but unalterably )pposed to compulsory education. Geo. R.Jones for the legislature crit cised the local option plan, saying it ,as the trick of political demagogues Lad instituted as a blow at the State lispensary. He cited instances where he dispensary was voted out in some >f the counties by negroes being allow 3d to vote and a number of white men were refused. D. L. Green opened by thanking the people of Manning and of Clarendon for the vote given him two years ago. He made no great promises on his cam paign two years ago and did every thing he could to aid the county and State and did not take up time in speaking on all questions that he was not interested in at a cost of $1.00 per hour; favors good roads, better schools, opposed a measure to cut down the ap propriation for Clemson college. He favors the dispensary. Mr. S. E. Ingram said all things had gone on well all around the circuit with a few exceptions. He seemed to dislike Dr. Woods' endeavoring to show up by comparison his local option platform. Mr. Ingram quoted from the Kingstree Record. "I condemn everything that is imperialistic," If elected he said that he would not allow the lobbyists to influence him. He dwelt upon the local option plan from start to finish. HP spoke of his record when only a boy of 16, during the stormy days of '65. Mr. W. W. Weeks favored the State dispensary and believed in the Raysor Manning bill. Mr. Weeks paid a trib ate to Mr. W. 0. Tatum and Col.Wilie Jones and said if they said that the dis pensary was not bankrupt he believed it, as he knew them personally. Mr. Jno. ; R. Dingle was the last speaker for the house of representa tives, and opened up by saying that he was not running on the demerits of any other candidates but upon his own mer its. He favored good roads but thought that a direct tax upon the people would be the only remedy; favored bet ter schools and an equal- adjustment of taxation. He is opposed to compul sory educat'on and would vote against it. Would vote to repeal the Brice law if elected. Mr. S. P. Holloday and Mr. F. Earl Bradham, candidates for superinten dent of education, both made eloquent speeches and indulged in some very witty jokes that created vociferous ap plause. Messrs Andrew Burgess and E. B. Brown, candidates for auditor both made good speeches. Messrs C. L. James, R. E. McFaddin, Jr., PeterMel let, T. C. Owens, Allen C. McFaddin and Junius M. Strange all made good speeches. They differed as to the way roads are to be worked in the county. The hour was growing late and the audience threw bouquets at the candi dates and jollied them along good-na turedly. Messrs L. L. Wells and J. M. Wind ham thanked the people for their sup port. appreciating the fact that they are having no opposition for treasurer and judge of probate. For magistrate at Manning Messrs S. M. Youmans, E. C. Thames, J. M. Bagnall and Thos. M. Ridgeway all made their pleas and the campaign closed at 3 o'clock. The reports of the State show Ansel to'have a long lead, with Manning next and Blease thii'd. Lyon for Attorney General also has a long leae over his oppo nents. These reports -may be materially changed by tomor row. The county vote shows Appelt leading Richardson for the sen ate, and these two will have to make a second race. For the legislature Dirngle is elected on first ballot, Green, Woods, Scar borough and Jones will have to make a second race. R. E. Mc Faddin, Jr., and 0. Allen Mc Faddin for supervisor will have to run over. Holladay for Su perintendent of Education is elected, and so is Burgess elect ed auditor. We regret that we have not a full and complete re port of both State and county, but it is the best we could do. The cotton crop condition of Clarendon is not as encouraging as we should like, but the corn crop is better than for a number of years. The oats and pea vine hay with the corn insures plenty of food for- man and beast, and it will be 'a great helper next summer. The editor of the News and Courier seems to be enjoying himself at the expense of the Manning base ball team, but to our way of thinking there was once upon a time an aggregation of men styling themselves the "Charleston base ball team" which seemed to be trying hard to rob Manning of the world's recorsd for defeats. The county campaign wound up in Manning last Friday, and with but ohne single exception, the candidates appeared to be running upon their individual merits, and not depending upon winning votes by trying to be smirch the political standing of other men. This is an improve ment on the past, and we hope it will continue to improve until the , people will scorn unfair methods, especially misrepre sentations and hypocrisy. The conduct of A. C. Jones at Greenville last week, in slap ing Joel E.Brunson,was a shock ing surprise to a host of Mr. Jones' acquaintances throughout the State, and they feel, if Mr. Jones was sane, his conduct was dastardly. cowardly and con temptible. The newspaper ac countAf the trouble shows that the language used by Mr. Brun son did not warrant Jones in us ing violence, and the lact of his acting as he did makes it clear he is not a proper man _to be placed in a trusted position by the people, and he should never in the future come before the people again for anything, It is also our opinion that Mr. Jones destroyed himself in a business way as well as politically. He is a traveling salesman, and he will find a cold reception wher ever he goes hereafter. People do not want anything to do with any man who can be capable of sch contemptible owwace Sardinia News. Editor The Manning Times: Sardinia and Concord crossed bats last Wednesday at Sardinia. The game was called at the eighth inning, on account of darkness; score 8 to 8. Miss Lillie Player has re turned from Beulah. where she has been attending a singing school. Mr. George Worhsam of Seloc spent Thursday night at Dr. Woods'.

Miss Pearle Truluck is visit ing Miss Lillie Player. Mr. Dan Wheeler has a very sick child. Mr. Sam McFaddin and Mood Wheeler went to Sumter Wed nesday. JACK.

You would be surprised to see how small she is, in her own estimation. She is small, but I notice she has a very fascinating way and attractive person. that causes the little boys from the age of 18 to 30 years to gravitate in her direction. Possibly she thinks this is on account of her being such a small girl. But lots of us think it is caused by size, age and good looks. Now Little Girl we want you to use your influence in getting some of your sparks from 18 to 30 out to help us on the school building. You mentioned one as helping that hasn't done as much as Willie and John Emanuel, in fact he hasn't worked on the building but one day. There are others that we think should be there. Don't you think so little girl? If you do try and get them to come out. Possibly they are waiting for a few of us to build the house and then they expect to come in and possess it. If that is their inten tion we want you to inform them, little girl, that the house will be built, and that it will be theirs; but we would like to have the pleasure of their com pany before as well as after its comple tion. Come out gentlemen and help us. If circumstances make it so you -can't come, give us your influence by speak ing a good word for the school. Help us every way you possibly can. Some of us are making sacrifices in time and means that is hurting. We are doing this for what we think will be for the best interest of the neighborhood. And all we ask is for all of you to do what the little girl tells you to do. We had the largest rain over here on Sunday afternoon I have ever ;seen. It rained A. M. White's wash pot full and washed Bill Daniels well up. He is going to vote for Appelt. KEG. City, Pa. had his hand frightfully burn ed in an electrical furnace.

Turbevilie Sparks. Editor The Manning Times: Mrs. I. W. Pittman, after an extend ed visit to her old home here, returned to her home at Pilot Mountain, North Carolina, last Thursday. She was ac companied by her brother, Mr. D. M. Turbeville, who will spend a short time with her. Miss Julia Benton, after a two week's stay with her sister, Mrs. J. L. Green, returned to her home at Sardis Sun aay. Rev. L. L. Bedenbaugh, who has been visiting relatives in Saluda and Columbia, has returned to his home at this place. He has been absent for three weeks, but took only two week's rest as he helped Rev. S. D. Bailey of Jordan in a series of revival services. Messrs D. L. Green and J. F. Turbe vile, two candidates of this place, at lended the campaign meetings held tast week. The former is seeking leg islative honors, while the latter is a candidate for matrimony. The depot at our railroad station,Se loc, tell on last Tuesday afternoon. It was not a surprise to us as we were ex pecting it to fall long before it did. We are sorely in need of a larger and bet ter depot and we trust the Alcolu Rail road Co., will see fit to erect one in the near future.' The D. W. Alderman & Sons Lum ber Co. has employed Mr. H. W. Cole as salesman for the "Camp" store on its log farm. The Children's Day exercises of the Pine Grove Sunday School will take place at that church on Saturday, Sep tember 1. The~public is cordially in vited to attend. Mr. Editor, we would have been glad could you have been with us on this occasion. G. Old maids would be scarce and hard to find, Could they be made to see, How grace and beauty is combined By using rocky Mountain Tea. Dr. Win. E. Brown & Co. Angels and Beards. The bishop of Alabama, who was noted for his piety and hu mor, was once asked, relates Harper's Weekly, why it was that the pictures and figures of men angels, as 'well as female angels, were represented with out Beards. He promptly replied that it seemed easy enough to make angels of women, but that men could only get into heaven by a "close shave." Complimentary Reader. We ask our patrons to read carefully each week the advertisements of Chas. M. Steiff, the great piano manufactur er. These advertisements will not on ly prove interesting, but a great help to those contemplating the purchase of a pino. The firm of Chas. M. Steiff began business in 1842. Their business rec ord is clean, pure and healthy and ev ery .person who has patronized them is a friend. Their instruments are artis tic in every sense of the word and rec ognized as one of the world's .standard pianos. It is the only artistic piano sold direct. HOME MISSIONS. MANNING AUXILIARY CONDUCTED BY MRS. J. D. GERALD, Superintend ent Press Work. The rapid influx of immigrants who are largely illiterate and without spiritual life present an urgent call for home mission effort wherever they may segre gate from our church. This work among foreigners to be successful requires a dif ferent kind of knowledge and mode of action from that used among native Americans. Missionaries to them should have some knowledge of their language, the conditions and customs of their home land and their religious belief and train ing. This ' suggests prepara tion. The wealth of the South and West, hidden away in its mines and corn fields, has been until ecently largely a latent power but as it is developed it not only gives money to Christian people but the opportunity to right eously expend it for the benefit of those who produce it. Our great cotton mills, rapidly in creasing in size and number of operatives, our mining towns and lumber camps, with their masses of humanity-all call loudly for evangelizing effort from those who employ and un derstand their several situations and needs and from the church at large. It is a work that, left undone, will make wealth a curse instead of a blessing to our land. SELECTED. =O1Ef3IIOET TAR stops the cough and h.alsuags A Wife's Reproach. Admiral Capps, in an address to a temperance society,told how drink had once caused the down fall of a brave soldier. In the course of the sad story he said: "Sometimes, after a debauch, the man. would be repentant, humble. He would promise his wife to do better, but, alas, the years taught her the barrenness of all such promises. "And one flight, when he was getting to be an old man-a pre maturely old man, thin-limbed, stoop-shouldered, with red-rim med eyes-he said to his wife sadly: "You're a clever woman, Jen ny; a courageous, active, good woman. You should have mar ried a better woman than I am, dear." "She looked at him,arid think ing of what he once had been, she answered in a quiet voice: "I did, James.' " Bane he Kind You Hav Alhays Bought A word in time doesn't save nine if there is a woman in the controversy. Soft answers do not turn away the wrath caused by the use of soft coal. Familiarity breeds contempt, and contempt for housework breeds bed bugs. It is the struggle to, keep up appearances that keeps a great many people down. Indulgent mothers are the ones that permit their children to annoy other people. Some women swear like men, while others are so pious they won't even darn socks. Its a mean man that will de liberately walk ~between a w' man and a bargain store win dow. It is always better to give than to receive-especially medicine and advice. It is permissable to kiss a wo man on the forehead-if she has been eating onions. Any man who keeps everlast ingly at it can teach his con science not to trouble him. Practice makes perfect-and it often makes the neighbors feel like smashing the piano. Some hats make a woman 's face look long, but not half as long as her husband's when he gets the bill. The wise father will try to bring up his children in the way he should have gone. A lawn mower is an sppr-opri ate wedding present for a man marries a grass widow. It is well enough for a man and his wife to pull together, but they should draw the line at hair pulling. If a woman isn't permitted to reign supreme in the household, the chances are she will get mad and storm. It is always well to obtain what one desires, but it is better to desire only what nne can ob tain. A man lives as long as he has the faculty to desire, and a wo man lives as long as she is desir able. Medicine before taking is an experiment; after taking its an experience-if you happen to survive. It is lucky for some people that all collectors are not as troublesome with their bills as Incomplete PrimaryI Returns. o - - ..p ,.
